Good thing there is nothing secret in there ;-) I'll look at what
caused/how to prevent these for the future.
Thanks !

Including generated files in the release tarball is intentional. The
goal is that the normal builder should not require any generators (be
that standard or some exotic ones) but only a normal build toolchain
to produce the final binaries.

If people don't want to use them, they can always use a `make *clean'
target, depending on their exact needs.

That said, if we get consensus that we shouldn't ship them I can make
that happen.
